Author(s): Ursula Dubosarsky
There were only eleven of them, like eleven sisters all the same age in a large family. Because it was such a very small class, they had a very small classroom, which was perched at the very top of the school. Then in the Gardens they meet a poet. What follows is inexplicable, shocking, a scandal. What really happened that day? And do the little girls know more than they are letting on?
